4-Mike Trout and Bryce Harper update

Last season Trout and Harper took the baseball world by storm by doing the impossible; living up to their rookie hype. The two young superstars are the most exciting players to watch in the game and play for teams with legitimate World Series dreams.

Harper opened the season by blasting two homers in a 2-0 Nats win, and while Trout has yet to go deep or steal a base, he is a guy you can’t take your eyes off of. These two have a real chance at becoming the Magic Johnson and Larry Bird of baseball; if they can grow side by side we could have ten to fifteen years of two men standing in each other’s way for World Championships and the honor of best player in the game.

Perhaps no World Series would garner more national attention than Nationals versus Angels, and I am going to predict that within the next three years it will come to fruition.
